Course Overview

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the hottest topic in tech right now and is already having a significant impact on our lives. Want to know how a computer named ‘Deep Blue’ beat a chess grandmaster over twenty years ago? Or how the AI behind AlphaGo beat the best human ‘GO’ player in the world?

Learn how to create complex AI models. You’ll make a celebrity response bot, create and then train a video game to play itself, and even create a friendly alien detector!

This is an excellent course for children interested in technology, coding and AI. Absolutely no previous programming knowledge is required. It’s perfect for beginners who are curious to learn more about one of the hottest tech trends around!

Students looking for a broader introduction to computer science fundamentals should check out our Junior Coder course while those interested in gaming might also be interested in our Video Game Design course.

This is an independent learning course, with a focus on project work. Students will work independently at their own pace through learning materials and assignments. They will also have weekly live onscreen tutorials for sharing progress and problem-solving.

There are 5 weekly tutorials, lasting 1 hour each. These tutorials are led by an expert, fully DBS-checked instructor. You will join a small group of other young learners online, working together in fun and engaging sessions. All sessions are monitored and recorded for safety.

What your child will learn

  • The fundamentals of Machine Learning and what confidence means in AI models
  • What AI can and cannot do well
  • Tools for creating and incorporating AI into applications such as Scratch and Python
  • The functions that AI machines do really well and how they are being used in the world already
